I got to eat lasagna last night. My hostess made a "normal" lasagna but used thinly sliced eggplant instead of noodles. I am NOT a fan of eggplant, but this was delicious. She salted the slices she said so they wouldn't be too watery.
A lovely recipe and such a pleasant surprise to have my needs taken into account. :)

Wow that was so considerate of her! I've never tried Eggplant before...what does it taste like?

I've done this, but used zucchini instead of eggplant. Much faster to cook then using noodles.

The eggplant didn't have much flavour, just took on the flavours of the rest of the lasagna. Although I am not a big pasta eater, I do miss lasagna, so it was really nice. No weight gain on a weekend away, with a few cheats since we were drinking and playing cards etc. Eating right helped a lot.

I have been making lazy-on-ya ( as my 4 yr old calls it) for years now with either eggplant or zucchini--love it. I slice the veg thin lengthwise add some salt, place between 2 kitchen towels and put the pan on top for about a hr. to get rid of the excess water then make as u would ususally.Here is a link I used as a guide
